The future belongs to the innovators. The dreamers who are also do-ers. It starts with creativity at the convergence of media and technology. Ideas that not only cross platforms, but anticipate new ones.

But it also means knowing how to apply those ideas. That’s what being a do-er is about. And what the Master’s in Media Ventures is about: our faculty teaches you the skills, strategy and process of developing your ideas to build a successful career.

So whether you’ve got the next killer app or want to take a traditional industry leader to the next level, get ready to create the media’s future. And your own.

Roll up your sleeves.

This is no passive program. Designed by leading media executives, the Master’s in Media Ventures curriculum is very much hands-on and career-oriented.

Start with an idea and build it out over the course of the program—complete with prototype and business and marketing plans. Then, pitch it to a panel of leading media executives and entrepreneurs. Media Ventures faculty, COM alumni, and biz-savvy mentors coach you through the process, one on one.

Prepare for the real world in the real world.

One year, two coasts.

As part of the program, you’ll complete two internships at start-ups or traditional media companies. You’ll gain crucial real-world experience and a network of industry contacts.

The MS in Media Ventures is a 12-month, three-semester, bi-coastal program at BU College of Communication and BU Los Angeles. Spend the fall in Boston, taking classes, developing your innovative concept and honing your pitch. Then, spend spring and summer in LA, completing your internships while continuing coursework. Finally, you finish up with your pitch to the pros.

Students in Boston University's Graduate Program in Media Ventures talk about their experiences as interns in start-ups in Boston and Los Angeles.

The next move is yours.
